Sarah Lawrence College, in partnership with the Hudson River Museum, invites applications for a Public Humanities Fellow starting no later than January 2022. This three-year, full-time fellowship will be integral to the interpretive work at the Hudson River Museum and also extend curricular and pedagogical innovation for the college in the areas of museum/curatorial studies, visual cultures, and/or Latino/a/x and Latin American studies.
At the Museum, the Public Humanities Fellow will pursue a curatorial and educational project focused on developing the Museum’s history collections and relationships to artists to reflect the rich diversity of people’s lives in Yonkers, Westchester, and the surrounding region. He/She/They will lead an initiative consisting of reaching out to the local Latino/a/x communities—fully recognizing the intersectionality that exists—to gather images, objects, and media for possible archival, collection, loans, and/or exhibition purposes. The Fellow will also participate on a museum-wide team to reinterpret the collection galleries.
Consideration of the applications will begin on August 1, 2021. Visit Sarah Lawrence College to apply.
